Car­radale char­ity night lifts Alzheimer funds

Campbeltown Courier - - FEATURE -

A GUI­TARIST who re­cently made na­tional head­lines af­ter turn­ing down the X Fac­tor belted out dance num­bers at a char­ity dance.

Matt McAl­lis­ter played a mix­ture of cov­ers and his own com­po­si­tions dur­ing a char­ity birth­day party to cel­e­brate the Ersk­ine fam­ily’s first year at Car­radale ho­tel.

As the Courier went to press more than £500 had been raised from the event held last Satur­day for Alzheimer Scot­land, although the to­tal fig­ure has not been fi­nalised.

Party-go­ers sam­pled a sump­tu­ous buf­fet in­clud­ing some rather un­usual fare – such as deep fried breaded cullen skink.

Raf­fle prizes in­cluded four ball games from Car­radale, Machri­han­ish Dunes and Du­naverty, a £50 meal voucher from Car­radale’s Do­minic Ryan, to be spent at the ho­tel, and for those too tired to travel home the ho­tel staff do­nated a stay in one of its rooms.
